Attended a wedding here recently. First time in this part of the country and we were blown away by the views from the hotel. First impressions of the hotel are not great, as there is run down buildings on the grounds. Check in was good, up to a huge room right over the ballroom with no views. However, as we were attending the wedding this was not an issue.
Went down to the bar, and that's when things became a little unnerving. The 2 bar men were standing, chatting with their arms folded, chewing gum watching a match! Very few staff wear name badges in this hotel and a manager was walking around with his tie loose and top shirt button undone. Uniforms are an array of mix and match in each department. I was beginning to think that this would be a poor experience, thankfully I was proved wrong.
What the staff lacked in professionalism, they more than made up for in friendliness.
The wedding meal was tasty, although the chef doesn't bother with presentation. The chicken starter was just an unsliced breast of chicken sitting on some lettuce, and the dessert selection consisted of 5 items placed on a plate with no cream, coulis or any type of decoration.
However, once you look past the lack of polish in this hotel, and don't get hung up on that fact, you will really enjoy your stay here. Breakfast the following morning was excellent. It is very much a country hotel, with staff who will look after you well.
